Successful Online Fundraising

Online fundraising is a very important part of your campaign. When creating a plan, make sure to put some effort into your online presence. 


  1. Create your campaign page.  Click CREATE A CAMPAIGN button on the landing page or campaign page of the Side-Out event you would like to support.  Follow the instructions!

  2. Personalize your campaign page. Donors appreciate team photos, stories and any other personal touches.

  3. Have each team member craft an e-mail and/or text to send to friends/family/neighborhood businesses explaining what you are doing and provide detailed information about how they can donate.

  4. Utilize Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, personal blogs, and any other means of online information sharing to reach out to possible donors. Always provide a link to your team’s Side-Out campaign page so they can donate easily.

  5. Send reminder e-mails/status updates before and after your fundraiser to keep your donors posted on your progress and to motivate those who have not yet given.

Fundraising doesn't have to be hard or stressful. Gift basket raffles, selling baked goodies, t-shirt sales, and having serving competitions are all great ways to create a fun and warm environment for the event, but they take lots of effort and time and sometimes they create stress for the coaches and the organizers.
